pro-gun senators understand things need to change. senators joe manchin and harry reid and mark warner have received stellar grades despite being democrat crate. harry reid said we're not doing enough to protect our citizens. he said, every idea should be on the table. senator warner told "the washington post," there's got to be a way to put reasonable restricts, particularly as we look at assault weapons as we look at these fast clip of ammunition. senator manchin is one of the nra's brightest stars on capitol hill. the nra endorsed him at the 2010 west virginia senate race. manchin ran a campaign ad where he fired a bill through the cap and trade bill. >> i think this is time for us to sit down and move in a responsible manner and i think they will. if dianne is saying assault weapons, i don't know anyone in the sporting arena that needs that for hunting. >> it's frustrating to know that we've been down here before. a 1989 school shooting in stockton, california, led to the first assault weapons ban in the nation. five years later, a federal ban was adopted by congress. here we are,
senator lifelong member of the nra joe manchin of west virginia said there needs to be a change. is there a myth around the power of the nra? >> i think there's a huge myth. republican pollsters have polled nra members in 75% of them believe in background checks so to me there's plenty of people with common sense who understand that there are changes like background checks and making sure that the system has all the records in it. it's something that can be done easily and needs to be done now. yesterday two law enforcements in kansas were killed. 34 more people will be killed. we need to act quickly and i feel things changed and we are going to take meaningful action. >> thank you very much, david chipman, for your time. you are with mayors against illegal guns. a consultant to that organization. thank you. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, coping with tragedy. chief pastor of the potter house bishop. thed. jakes will discuss the role of faith. we so many different people joining the president yesterday. what is the road ahead for all of us, the struggle to understand the evil tha

might be losing a script on washington. nra member and senator joe manchin now says he's rethinking his positions on gun control. but as dave weigal points out, the nra habit lost any gun legislation since 1999. the five republicans who voted aye are all gone and al gore's tie breaking aye became a focus of the nra's campaign against him. and just somedays before the slaughter at sandy hook elementary, the nra was actively fear mongering over gun laws. an nra spokesman told the washington examiner on december 5th that the organization was preparing to battle with the president. we're not optimistic. we're planning for the worst. we've told people to plan for gun bans and a supreme court stacked with anti-gun judges. the president has a variety of options and a disposal we don't take any of them for granted. let's turn to mark glaze. he's director of mayors against illegal guns. >> is this a history-making moment with firearms in this country. >> it absolutely is. to me, it feels like us who are at the oklahoma city bombing. where things have gotten so bad that you had this explosively t

with a better answer than i gave them on friday night. >> senator joe manchin of west virginia who once appeared in a campaign ad shooting a rifle, declared it's now time to act during a statement made by "morning joe" host and former congressman joe scarborough. >> i'm a proud nra member, always have been. we need to sit down and move this dialogue to a sensible, reasonable approach. i don't know anyone in the hunting or sporting arena that goes out with an assault rifle. i don't know anyone that needs 30 rounds in the clip to go hunting. millions of people are proud gun people and obey the law. seeing the massacre of so many innocent children, it's changed. it's changed america. >> politicians can no longer be allowed to defend the status quo. they must be forced to defend our children. parents can no longer take no for an answer from washington when the topic turns to protecting our children. entrenched special interests will try to muddy the cause in the coming days. the cause of this sickening mass shooting like the others is no longer a mystery to commonsense americans. blessedly there are
touch americans in a way, this whole weekend, and the president's speech and people like joe manchin stepping forward, really, i think -- i think it's got americans talking, for the first time, on this issue, in a really surprising way. i was -- i was struck not by how many democrats or liberals called after the show and said, boy, we really liked what you guys did and the conversation was needed. i was struck by how many friends of mine from first baptist church in pensacola, florida, that are lifetime members of the nra, who went out hunting across northwest florida and alabama and georgia and mississippi, from the time they were 9, 10. jon meacham, you were raised in a similar culture. although you were wearing white gloves during your formative years. i'm sorry. i was struck that the most passionate people that said what you always want to hear, thank you for saying what i wanted to say. thank you for putting into words. they were -- they were, my friends from first baptist church, they were hunters, they were people that said, i'm not going to have somebody -- i'm not going to h

who want this the most, are going to have to let people like joe manchin step forward because if joe manchin's leading this bill and police officers are behind this bill, law enforcement officers across america, local sheriffs in hometowns are behind this bill, it's going to make a huge difference. >> what joe mentioned -- saying is you have to put other things into this. you have to do the education, the mental health, the videos and the cultural aspects as well as guns because you have to broaden this coalition. that's his main pitch. i was so struck -- and forgive me, i can't remember the names -- you'll know it, of the syracuse basketball coach, the winning coach, 900 victories who, in his locker room victory moment, didn't want to talk about his victories on the court. he wanted to talk about guns. the athletic figures, you know, cruz and all the others -- >> you'll have sports figures, country music stars, hometown -- >> it's cull rtural. >> sheriffs. i think the biggest shock to me this week, i haven't been hearing from a lot of liberals. hey, good job. conservatives, nra memb
senator joe manchin, who is a lifetime member of the nra. after the newtown shooting, he said monday on msnbc's "morning joe," that it is "time to move beyond rhetoric" on gun-control. president obama called senator manchin on tuesday to talk about this issue of gun control. >> i can honestly say i have gone deer hunting. i just came with my family from deer hunting. i never had more than three shells in a clip. sometimes you don't get more than one shot anyway. it is common sense. it is time to move beyond rhetoric. we need have a common-sense discussion and move in a reasonable way. anyones and they don't want to talk and sit down and have that type of dialogue is wrong. anyone that says when chuck schumer says we should not have more than 10 rounds in a clip, you know, they would be wrong to say it should not be on the table. everything should be on the table. >> that was conservative democratic senator joe manchin of west virginia. in a 2010 campaign ad, manchin famously used a rifle to shoot a piece of cap and trade climate control legislation. this is a clip. >> i will always d
joe manchin said yesterday, after he talked about his transformation and the way he thinks about guns and gun rights, was that the president needs to move quickly on this if they're going to do something significant, talking about in the next week, the next couple of weeks before unfortunately this moment to some degree will pass, will move out of the news cycle a little bit and we won't focus on it as we are. joe manchin, not alone said if we're going to do something significant and lasting, it has to happen quickly! the president has to show leadership on that. he put out in his speech something has to give. he has to push hard if it's going to change. >> it needs to be comprehensive. mi you've been talking about guns such a long time. it does need to be comprehensive. there are hollywood interests. it's so fascinating, very few criticism, almost none from the right, of what we said yesterday. almost none. a couple critiques from the far left, say iing, i didn't get ho dare you talking about infringing on our rights. i actually gotsome leftists talking about how dare you talk about
the press" saying she was going to revive the assault weapons ban. listen to senator joe manchin who has a rating of "a" with the nra. >> everything has to be on the table and i think it will be. when you look at it, if dianne is saying assault weapons, i don't know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle. i don't know anybody that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. >> does that sound to you like the beginning of some sort of change? because david gregory said that they reached out to all 31 pro-gun senators, none of them would come on the program. what chance does some kind of bill have? >> well, i think both the president's signal that he would do everything in his power was pretty striking and also the fact that you heard very little until today from the gun rights lobby signals both that this is going to be a political fight but it may not be as big of a political fight as it was or would have been after some of these others. i think the fact that innocent children were involved, were the victims here, really may have opened the nation's eyes
-capacity magazines. we heard from joe manchin and joe warner, both with a-ratings with the nra. to ruth's point, chris, is there a chance that republicans could help to move them as well? >> well, i think so. i think we have seen that on the fiscal cliff issue. and the feeling here at the capitol, i've put the question to them and said, if gabby giffords, a congresswoman one of your own was almost fatally shot, and congress didn't react on gun control, what has to happen after this new event? this has changed the tenor. i was talking to a democratic leadership aide to made that point and also made the point when you have harry reid, if you remember in 2010, a tough re-election. the nra king just short of stopping him saying he was a friend of the second amendment. you have joe manchin and now mark warner. those are moderate democrats. they help bring republicans on board. maybe we would see movement. >> i want to bring in congressman yarmouth. >> good morning, chris. >> yesterday, you apologized for being silent on the issue for the last six years. what specifically do you think can get done no
amendment rights. earlier today i spoke with west virginia senator joe manchin, a life-long member of the national rifle association. >> senator, manchin, thank you for joining us today. this is a very difficult time for the nation. it is a difficult time for everyone. you as a national rifle association life-long member, a leader and a senator, have a special obligation. has this changed everything? >> andrea, it's changed me. i don't think there's a warm front wvan that i know or someone that hasn't been moved by this horrific crime against our children, and we've never seen this happen before. nor could we ever expect anything like this to happen? so i think it has changed from the standpoint of we as adults should come together, one of the promises we make to our children, one of the five promises colin powell talks about is of child should have a safe place in their life where harm cannot do them any danger, and sometimes it's not always the home. usually it's always the school, and that's been taken away from us, so we have to re-evaluate. as you said, i'm a life member of th
senator joe manchin both now say they support sitter regulation of assault rifles. -- stricter regulation of assault rifles. in the past both men have been strong advocates of the nra. joining us tonight is josh horowitz, executive director of the coalition to stop gun violence and eric pratt, director of communications for gun owners of america. eric, let me start with you. what is your organization's response to the tragedy in connecticut? >> well, certainly our heart goes out to the families of the victims. i can definitely relate with what they're going through. i myself lost a child through a drowning accident and so i totally understand the angst and pain they're going through, but i would say what the senators are talking about and the politicians are talking about in going after the firearms and banning these or placing more restrictions is not going to make people more safe. in fact, what we have, we've tried this approach over and over. if you look over the last couple decades, almost all except for one of the mass murders that have occurred in this country, they've happened in

like joe manchin speaking out as you indicated, and people all across the floor today were coming up to the members of the connecticut delegation saying on both sides of the aisle an understanding that we have to take action. not to act governor, i believe makes this congress complicity. because we know this will happen again. as we've seen throughout too many of our cities, and with too much heartache and too many vigils like we experienced today, lowering the flags at half mass, having a moment of silence people's sincerity and surely their heartfelt thoughts to everyone in newtown are accepted and are wonderful. what is required of elected officials is action. now is the time to act. this is a match that cannot be postponed, and we are complicit congress is complicity if we don't take deeper action. i know it requires dialogue i know as your mayor of new york city indicated restrictions on guns and i have an understanding that we can bring the nra along on this with universal background checks and with respect to assault clips that's the only way you can refer to the magazines tha
